Avanti Mansion – Hamburg, NY

Wedding Venue Photography

The Avanti Mansion is a beautiful private venue located in Western New York.   All it takes is one turn onto the inviting tree-lined driveway for time to slow and the enchantment to begin.

Built in 1892, this 19th century “summer home” has a unique blend of old southern charm and modern function.  The quiet historic estate, its undeveloped beauty and surrounding woodlands make it the perfect choice to host your wedding or special event.

The Avanti Mansion features three unique venue options, including both outdoor and indoor areas for wedding ceremonies, receptions, and unlimited photo opportunities. Inside the mansion, guests can enjoy a tour of the recently restored library, parlor, dining room and conservatory, all of which are appointed with intimate sitting areas.   The elegant bridal suite, accented in Swarovski crystals, and the private powder room are especially exquisite. Prior to the ceremony, the Bride and her attendants may use this area for dressing and photographs.

A quaint walk outside to the Japanese lily pond will provide a romantic setting making it a wedding favorite.  Further exploring the estate, you may choose to stop and admire the spectacular beech tree pergola garden and conversational pet memorial.  For nature lovers, a view of Rush Creek and the various annual gardens will be a special treat.

Although designed with the Bride in mind, the Avanti Mansion also appeals to the corporate client seeking a relaxed retreat.
